Is adding No.2 pick Jabari Parker enough to make the Milwaukee Bucks a playoff team? Milwaukee was just as bad as Philadelphia last year, and they didn’t even suffer a historic losing streak. Whether or not new head coach Jason Kidd can bring this team together and form a playoff squad remains to be seen, but seeing as the Eastern Conference is a relatively weak group, it’s definitely not impossible.

The Milwaukee Bucks added a lot of help at the guard position with Jerryd Bayless and Kendall Marshall joining the team. Still, the “Greek Freak” Antetokounmpo, a 6’11” forward, looks like he may be playing point guard for this team. His athleticism is freakishly scary and his development is a thing to watch this year. Jabari Parker looked like the most NBA ready player in this year’s draft and the Milwaukee Bucks get the pleasure of having him on their team. If Jason Kidd can bring this squad together properly, they have a small chance of competing for a 7 or 8 seed. Expect Jabari to either win or be the runner-up for this year’s NBA Rookie of the Year award.
There is not much premier talent on this team and the players who are talented are awfully young and raw. This team may have another year or two to properly develop into a playoff team but they do have some dangerous talent on their roster. Jason Kidd has his work cut out for him. but in due time he’ll be able to transform this team into a competitor. Until then, the Bucks must improve their bench and depth, or they will be heading nowhere.
